One Response to Tony Blair Coming to teach Americans about Faith

  1. Robert Muir says:

    There is something that is tremendously sinister and disturbing about former British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s appointment to a teaching position at Yale University?

    Yale University, the home of the notorious of the Skull and Bones secret society, which includes such former trainees as current American president George W Bush. One can only imagine that there may be more; a whole lot more, involved in this so – called teaching position of religion and globalization by Blair than what initially meets the eye?

    Is in fact Blair involved in a recruiting campaign for helpers to assist him in his role to the soon to be created position of EU president? One can only surmise?

    Quote: TONY Blair is to further his interest in religion by teaching classes on “faith and globalization” at the prestigious Yale University in an initiative linked to the Tony Blair Faith Foundation, due to be launched later this year.

    Academics at Yale School of Management and Divinity are working with Mr Blair to finalize details of the course. A source close to the former prime minister said he was “delighted” to be taking on the new challenge.

    The Connecticut university’s president, Richard Levin, said staffs were “honoured” Mr Blair would be joining them. His pay is expected to be nominal, and it has yet to be decided how much time the job will involve. “His role in the Middle East will be unaffected,” the source added.

    Since leaving Number 10 last summer, Mr Blair has taken on a range of posts, including becoming Middle East envoy for the so-called Quartet of powers – the US, the UN, the EU and Russia.

    Mr Blair converted from Anglicanism to Catholicism last year. He said faith played a major part in some of his most controversial decisions, including sending troops to invade Iraq.

    He has earned millions of pounds with consultancies at investment bank JP Morgan and financial services giant Zurich. A deal with Random House for his memoirs is thought to be worth about £5 million.

    There has been speculation that Mr Blair wants the soon-to-be-created role of EU president. End Quote

    The late and great British writer Antony Sutton had his say on the order before his untimely passing:-

    America’s Secret Establishment”, by Antony C. Sutton, 1986, page 5-6, states: “Those on the inside know it as The Order. Others have known it for more than 150 years as Chapter 322 of a German secret society. More formally, for legal purposes, The Order was incorporated as The Russell Trust in 1856. It was also once known as the “Brotherhood of Death”. Those who make light of it, or want to make fun of it, call it ‘Skull & Bones’, or just plain ‘Bones’.

    The American chapter of this German order was founded in 1833 at Yale University by General William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft who, in 1876, became Secretary of War in the Grant Administration. Alphonso Taft was the father of William Howard Taft, the only man to be both President and Chief Justice of the United States.

    The order is not just another Greek letter fraternal society with passwords and handgrips common to most campuses. Chapter 322 is a secret society whose members are sworn to silence. It only exists on the Yale campus (that we know about). It has rules. It has ceremonial rites. It is not at all happy with prying, probing citizens – known among initiates as ‘outsiders’ or ‘vandals’. Its members always deny membership (or are supposed to deny membership) and in checking hundreds of autobiographical listings for members we found only half a dozen who cited an affiliation with Skull & Bones. The rest were silent. An interesting point is whether the many members in various Administrations or who hold government positions have declared their members in the biographical data supplied for FBI ‘background checks’.

    Above all, The Order is powerful, unbelievably powerful. If the reader will persist and examine the evidence to be presented – which is overwhelming – there is no doubt his view of the world will suddenly come sharply into focus, with almost frightening clarity.

    It is a Senior year society which exists only at Yale. Members are chosen in their Junior year and spend only one year on campus, the Senior year, with Skull & Bones. In other words, the organization is oriented to the graduate outside world. The Order meets annually – patriarchies only – on Deer Island in the St. Lawrence River.

    Senior societies are unique to Yale. There are two other senior societies at Yale, but none elsewhere. Scroll & Key and Wolf’s Head are supposedly competitive societies founded in the mid-19 th century. We believe these to be part of the same network. Rosenbaum commented in his “Esquire” article, very accurately, that anyone in the Eastern Liberal Establishment who is not a member of Skull & Bones is almost certainly a member of either Scroll & Key or Wolf’s Head.

    .. The selection procedure for new members of The Order has not changed since 1832. Each year 15, and only 15, never fewer, are selected. In the past 150 years about 2500 Yale graduates have been initiated into The Order. At any time about 500-600 are alive and active. Roughly about one- quarter of these take an active role in furthering the objectives of The Order. The others either lose interest or change their minds. They are silent drop-outs.

    .. The most likely potential member is from a Bones family, who is energetic, resourceful, political and probably an amoral team player. … Honors and financial rewards are guaranteed by the power of The Order. But the price of these honors and rewards is sacrifice to the common goal, the goal of The Order. Some, perhaps many, have not been willing to pay this price.

    The Old Line American families and their descendants involved in the Skull & Bones are names such as: Blair himself, Whitney, Perkins, Stimson, Taft, Wadsworth, Gilman, Payne, Davidson, Pillsbury, Sloane, Weyerhaeuser, Harriman, Rockefeller, Lord, Brown, Bundy, Bush and Phelps.
